"The Soft Block": Treating Severe Recessions Around Dental Implants

Description:
Implants have been one of the major breakthroughs in dentistry. Tissue collapse around dental implants is our number one enemy as it gives rise to serious problems that go from inflammation, through many times chronic infection, all the way down to severe recession, seriously compromising not only esthetics, but also function and our patients well being. Strategies have been developed to help clinicians to try to avoid collapse. Among the most important are procedures such as: grafting the gap; GBR with several biomaterials and barriers; flapless approaches; immediate implant placement after tooth removal with provisionalization using CAD-CAM & 3D technologies and ultimately PET strategies also combined or not with immediate load. Unfortunately severe recession around dental implants are still a problem clinicians have to face in their everyday practice. Recessions and peri-implantitis come together very often. To deal with it we have to develop strategies to meet our patients expectations. Being capable to improve the biological environment around a dental implant may have huge relevance in it´s long-term prognosis. Treatment algorithms proposed by some authors are often very complicated and so many times frustrating in what comes to results. A biological approach will be presented to try to solve this kind of clinical challenge, other than implant explantation that must be also, and so many times, considered as the first choice.

Excellent lecture, Thanks

Basil thank you for your input. Yes, you got it right: the harvesting includes the periosteum. I would say that this is probably the reason the results are so incredible! Filipe Lopes

Thank you . PLEASE show us how to create implant sulcuses like you do !!

barry manson - (12/5/2017 8:09 AM)

very interesting! Thank you! barry

kevin potocsky - (12/4/2017 2:33 PM)

this is just a free gingival graft covering rough implant surface?? Did i miss anything?? Can we roughen the implant with bur??

yiannis vergoullis - (12/4/2017 6:13 AM)

This is a great presentation! If you would be please be so kind I have the following questions: 1. 0.2μRa has been shown to be the threshold value regarding composite roughness with regards to plaque adhesion,on the other hand a well polished surface has shown variable results with regards to CT adhesion (Chu S et al. dual zone article, where some cases showed bleeding and some no upon temporary prosthesis removal). Thus the tissue you show on your last case with the custom healing abutment, is this CT adhesion effect or an irritated/possibly inflamed tissue? My guess is that only histologic evaluation of cells present would give a definitive answer but I am interested in your opinion 2. With regards to Laser lock design, it is my understanding that the effect is due to the different micro geometry and not to the roughness of the surface. Surface treatment modalities have an effect on the roughness and is irrelevant to the presence of the groves, am I wrong? I believe that you have raised an important parameter which is the roughness threshold of biocompatible materials with regard to CT response. Very interesting! Thank you Ioannis

Absolutely LOVE this CONCEPT and presentation. It is a MUST for ALL especially those performing advanced implant procedures. The TISSUE is the ISSUE indeed!! thanks Mo

Basil Fletcher - (12/2/2017 5:22 PM)

Thank you for an excellent presentation. Does the soft tissue block include the palatal periosteum. Would you advise smoothing of the exposed threads for easier maintenance and to decontaminate the implant surface. Thank you, Basil Fletcher

Maximizing Esthetics with Minimally Invasive Surgery Around Implants
Soft tissue deficiencies around implants impact esthetics and often lead to escalating problems. Early recognition and intervention with minimally invasive soft tissue surgery reduces the risk of undesirable sequellae associated with conventional surgical approaches around implants. The application of a minimally invasive soft tissue grafting method will be shown for treatment of soft tissue problems around implants and the indications for use of this technique will be outlined.

Restoring the Pink and White Esthetics. Clinical Case Presentation
Every esthetic case is a challenge. As clinicians we need to understand and combine different treatment modalities and materials to achieve outstanding esthetic and functional results. This clinical case will demonstrate the importance of the little details, and how they influence the final result. We’ll go step by step thought the analyze, planning surgical and prosthetic procedures with focus on the key points that I find to be crucial.

Soft Tissue Donor Selection: “Connective Tissue Grafts Are Not All Created Equal”
With the evolution of periodontal plastic surgery soft tissue grafting is becoming more and more essential in modern dentistry, whether around natural teeth or dental implants. Many donor grafts have been available to choose from, with autogenous grafts are still being the gold standard, in tissue grafting procedures. This webinar is for clinicians who are interested in different tissue grafts procedures but want to know more about the nature of each graft and what to expect in terms of clinical results. In this webinar we will discuss the differences between different autogenous soft tissue grafts and how to utilize them properly to achieve the best results in various clinical situations.

Diagnosis, Planning, & Treatment of Altered Passive Eruption; From a Periodontists Perspective
This presentation will teach how to diagnose cases of altered passive eruption based on the radiographic evaluation (with peri-apical rx and CBCT) and how to plan and document a surgical procedure aimed to ‘uncover’ the beautiful and natural hidden enamel. In a world where esthetics is becoming more and more a concern a simple periodontal plastic surgical procedure can re-establish esthetic and balance to the patients affected by this condition.

Developing Optimal Peri-Implant Papillae within the Esthetic Zone: Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
Osseointegrated dental implants have enjoyed long-term success in the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients. Every aspect of traditional treatment planning protocols continues to be re-evaluated and updated to better incorporate the benefits of osseointegration into clinical practice. This is particularly evident as dentistry has committed to fully integrating this approach into the more varied and demanding environment of the partially edentulous patient. Along with the many benefits of added predictability and enhanced options, the ever-evolving role of osseointegrated implants in the treatment pf the partially edentulous jaw has also created new challenged. Unlike the fully edentulous individual who maintains the implant-restorative interface beyond the lip perimeter, many partially edentulous patients undergo the transition within the esthetic zone.

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement

Soft Tissue Enhancement After Implant Placement
Soft tissue management is one of the key factors for successful implant restoration. Esthetics can be strongly influenced by the conditions of the peri-implant tissue. Substantial knowledge of tissue anatomy and biology is a fundamental prerequisite for surgical success. The present chapter introduces different techniques to improve the appearance of the soft tissue after implant placement. Cases of repositioned flaps, FGGs, and CTGs are presented along with biological considerations. It was our intention to present various indications and options to the clinician to achieve an increased amount of peri-implant KG or connective tissue thickness.
